Description
An excellent antique thick sheepskin red lacquered suitcase with cut leather decorations of stylized dragons and calligraphy of Shou (Longevity) and Xi (Happiness). It has a very thick hand-forged rarer circular shape old brass plates. This suitcase with a soft top has the old red lacquer that is made of organic mineral color pigment. Late 19th century.

Sheep skin is a much thicker and harder material to work with than the pigskin. Old sheep skin trunks, especially the ones with appliqued leather techniques are rarer as few factories remain in working with this material and technique today.
